Discussion: 3N2 Shoes

#19

If you play in hot weather or on a hot surface, they will melt the glue also. I remember when I played adult baseball in the heat of the day here in Texas, having to stay on the grass when playing the infield.

When catching it wasn't so bad. My butt shaded my feet.

Webbie,

When Johnson, "establishment" Republican, took the tiller in New Mexico in 1995, the budget stood at $4.397 billion. When he left in 2003, it had grown to $7.721 billion, an increase of 7.29 percent a year. Of the eleven governors who filed to run for president this year (two Democrats, Johnson, and eight Republicans), only one had a worse record on spending growth.

Johnson inherited a debt of $1.8 billion and left a debt of $4.6 billion, a rate of increase unmatched by the 22 governors in either party who have filed for presidential primaries in the past two decades, with the exception of Governor Tom Vilsack (D-IA) in 2007.

Now that he is Libertarian, what has he done lately? Reagan switched parties and that was a miserable experience for working class Americans.

What are his platforms and ideas on how to make America the great bastion of democracy it claims it is?

I'm very well aware of the happening in the recount. If I remember correctly, there were two independent studies done, not actually recounts.

I'm always willing to change. I just don't want to change back to what didn't work before.

Dear stick8,

The blurb was from the humor section of The New Yorker........what do you expect? Humor just like the Bill Maher clip.

I'm sure Nader took votes away from Gore, just like the hanging chads gave votes to Pat Buchannan. However, it should be more noted that Gore was denied a legal recount in Florida, where his brother Jeb was governor because the ultra-conservative Supreme Court let Bush do an end run to the presidency.

The system sucked us into the Great Recession like a roaring vacuum into the great abyss.

Dear stick8,

If Donald Trump condemned those comments, he will probably change his mind tomorrow......LOL

I agree that the system is rigged for the most part......but check out the pro-military, pro-police faction that goes off on an Iraq war veteran, Tammy Duckworth. They should play the Star Spangled Banner every time she walks into the room. Even the bathroom!

Dear Webbie25,

I wasn't talking about the television news media. I was referring to Facebook pages with their comments and those with a comment and blog section.

It doesn't have to be on that one particular incident. It's everything from the economy to the unemployment rate. You name it. Even good news is bad news as they deny it to be true.

They go off on Hillary, also. They call the FLOTUS a tranny even. Why I used the words slander and libel in an earlier post.

Like I said earlier the right has moved so far to the right, the left doesn't have any other place to go except further to the left. There is no compromise with right wing Republicans.

Dear stick8,

"I'm sick and tired of people who say if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration"

How often does a very educated, intelligent and articulate person speak and very thing he says and does is wrong? When the Dixie Chicks said they weren't proud to be from Texas, George W. Bush's faux home state, an uproar ensued. When the murdering president of the Philippines calls our sitting president a SOB, they go wild like feeding piranhas to agree with him.

It is just utterly disgraceful bigotry and hatred. And that is a fact! The right has moved so far over to the extreme, there isn't any middle ground anymore. The flag stands for a lot of things. Many of them I haven't and never will agree with.

Discussion: Colin Kaepernick

Dear Webbie25,

I've had what I would call two encounters with the police over the years.

One when I had a bad experience with Ambien. I got stopped by six police cars. My truck searched without my consent where they found some Tylenol in a brown subscription bottle. Thrown forcibly to the ground and cuffed for no apparent reason. I was standing calmly. Thrown in a police cruiser with all the windows up and no air.

They called my wife, who instructed them to take to an area hospital. An ambulance came where she met me there. After some tests, a policeman came into the room where I was. He was told by the attending doctor that they found no illegal drugs in my system. He stormed out in disgust.

On the second occasion, I was umpiring some youth ball on a very hot day. I started to experience some heat-related symptoms. I went into the a/c concession stand to ask for some Gatorade. There I was met loudly and rudely by an idiot that just sits in the concession and lets everyone else do all the work.

Needless to say, an argument broke out. They called the police on me. Again, I was rudely cuffed, thrown in the back of a hot cruiser with no air all the time I was experiencing heat-related symptoms. They then transported me to the police station where I was treated very rudely and thrown in a holding cell. I requested some medical attention. Finally, some EMT's showed up about three hours later and confirmed what I saying.

When the police finally decided to transport me to the 'county hospital' after about three more hours, the officer thought he should take another 30 minutes to gas up his cruiser to transport me. I was taken to the emergency room where I was forced to wait another four hours for medical attention.

After determining that my body was very low on fluids, they admitted me to the floor where gang members are kept. I was handcuffed to the bed rail and was under constant surveillance. I wasn't even able to contact my wife who had no clue as to where they had taken me.

They pumped several bags of fluids in me for most of the day. After they decided they had had enough fun with me, they just left me there with no way to get home, nor a belt and shoes. Since no charges were filed, I was finally able to get in touch with the wife to come pick me up. Lucky for me I was in the same part of the hospital as JFK after he was shot so I got a feeling of nostalgia [sarcasm intended].

When I went to go pick up my belongings from the property room, I counted my money and a sizable amount wasn't there. I was told I could file a claim. When I refused to sign the paper releasing my belongings, I was rudely escorted out by about three cops. I had to go back the next day and signed for my belongings and was able to locate the missing money as they had failed to look where I stashed it. You can only imagine the look on the property clerk's face when I pulled out the money.

Now you might think it is funny, but in reality, I could have died in their custody. It makes me wonder about all the others that die in police custody and if something could have been done to avoid their deaths. If you're behind their bars, they have a strong feeling of superiority. I was never rude to any of the officers, but they were often rude toward me.

You mentioned the biased liberal media. Was there anything they reported that you felt wasn't true, or do you have such a strong belief in your convictions that you feel discriminated against? You can't go through a day without seeing Trump's face plastered everywhere. I see and hear all the fright wing lies daily if I get on social media. Speaking of social media, they didn't notice Kaepernick wasn't standing until the third exhibition game. He didn't stand during the previous two. Also if you have a liberal audience, the papers will usually have a liberal slant.

If anybody should feel disrespected in this country, it is President Obama. I've never read or heard so much BS in all my life directed to one person. They even talk BS about his wife. Why is it the same people that think they are the patriots of America feel it is their undeniable right to slander and libel about their sitting president? If they have a valid complaint, then state it in a civil matter like Kaepernick did in his interview.

I'm not disrespecting all police or military, but they aren't infallible in their actions. You are right when you say this country is going downhill. Remember, though, Republicans hold Congress, the majority of governorships and the legislature of a majority of states. That is the party that has brainwashed the simple minded minions into a frenzy over the poor being the reason they don't have anything. Not to mention, they always claim to be the hardest working people.

It is not a perfect system, but it is the system we've used for well over 200 years. Right now all your "freedoms" are dictated by big money. Koch brothers, NRA, Monsanto, big pharmacy, etc. Since you live in California, you also should be aware that state is the fifth largest economy in the world. Jerry Brown has done a masterful job considering what Arnold left the state with. The same goes for Obama after the Bush administration dine and dash.

On the subject of Michael Brown, three autopsies were done, One by the county medical examiner who couldn't make a clear determination. Two by noted forensics doctor, Michael Badin and the DOD who both ruled the shooting was a homicide. The DOJ investigated Ferguson and found evidence of discrimination. Why all the top dogs in that city resigned.

Personally, if you feel disrespected, I can understand it. However, disrespecting Kaepernick doesn't solve the problem. And you should also remember people like MLK, Medgar Evans and others who were assassinated. It is just a matter of opinion........my opinion is there are a lot of Americans who need to get their s**t together.

I could ramble on forever, but I don't want to further upset the Olsen twins benji4 and Dbax..........LOL

Oh, Benji. You don't have the rationale to ascertain that I'm an educated person and you're not. FYI ~ You don't have to have balls to go into the military or law enforcement. Hence, the women that do the same job.

Coming out of high school I had a Marine recruiter call me once a week. The reason. Because I made excellent grades and I was a leader. To readily digress, I had a few ex-military tell me not to sign up......simple as that.

As for law enforcement, I'm not especially fond of donuts. I seriously doubt many of the old-timers could pass a fitness for duty test, and the new ones today are so jacked up on speed or steroids it is pathetic. And since when did it take balls to shoot an unarmed person being held down on the ground? Why is it people like you want the responsibility, but none of the accountability? That's where the problem lies.

Would you be like Darren Wilson? Wilson murdered a young black man, lie about it, and then run like a scalded dog to who knows where.
Why in the hell would an innocent man, especially a sworn officer of the law, just vanish into to thin air? Perhaps the reason being, a Go Fund Me page raised $250,000 for his legal fees for which he never needed as he wasn't indicted. Also, he was able to procure approximately the same sum for an interview. Image that, a cool half mil for murdering a citizen.

The Police Department in Ferguson, Mo. had persistently and repeatedly violated the constitutional rights of African Americans, jailing them for minor offenses far more often than whites, using traffic stops to arrest them disproportionately and subjecting them to excessive force, a Justice Department investigation has concluded.

The investigation portrayed a city in which police dogs were set upon blacks but not whites and where blacks were seven times more likely to be subjected to force than whites, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation’s findings.

I do find your classic comeback of "Don't believe the lies Obama tell you and if you don't like it move to Iraq" amusing if not trite in nature. You, sir, are a classic example of the systematic dumbing down of America. If you don't like it, I sure Obama has a bed with your name on it at the FEMA Hotel nearest you.

As I concluded this broadcasting day with the playing of the National Anthem in the background as in the olden day of television, I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that you are a knob!

Oxymoron of the day. Colin Kaepernick wants to make America great. Donald Trump tells him if he doesn't like it he should find an another country. Donald Trump wears a hat that says make America great again.................What? 1950's great? There are several racist policemen, military, and ex-military so I fail to see the point of disrespect.

I've yet to hear any of them protest a KKK parade down the middle of Main St waving Old Glory. Then you have that redneck wannabe yuppie on Duck Dynasty wearing a flag as a do-rag. Where is the outrage there? And what about those outlaw drug dealing, stealing biker gangs sporting the flag like they're real patriots? Somebody stop me before I get too carried away.

And by the way, the military is the biggest "socialist" program going today. How many of them apply for subsidized housing, food stamps, and medical. Hate Obamacare, then you hate the Veteran's Administration healthcare program too. Let's not forget the free college tuition. That's right, it is Socialism 101. Those are my tax dollars at work. I expect more bang for my buck.

Then you have those with Agent Orange, the Pat Tillman coverup and all the reported rapes and assaults on female military personnel that the higher ups never do anything about. Wait, then there is David Petraeus leaking classified material to his cheating on her husband biographer, Paula Broadwell. Who does he think he is, Hillary Clinton? The military isn't sounding so hot from where I sit.

I could probably write a novel about the police and their itchy trigger fingers. However, the one that sticks out in my mind the most happened in Cleveland not long ago. A police officer rolls up on an eleven-year-old Tamir Rice and shoots him. A police call came in that a black man was holding a gun in a park. Would they have shot a white man in cold blood? Didn't the cop know that Ohio is an open carry state? The real topper is the city of Cleveland sending a bill to the parents of the slain lad for his ambulance ride to the hospital where he pronounced dead on arrival. What happened to Officer Barney Fife, Jr? Apparently nothing. He must just drive around all day in his police car playing with the siren and occasionally looking at the bullet they let him carry in his pocket.

I'll be waiting with bated breath when all you ex-military, ex-policemen, etc. go off the deep end about the above I just mentioned. Those are the people and things that make y'all look bad, not Colin Kaepernick.

Dear bkb55,

I have worked several high-level playoff games in the state of Texas behind the plate. Sometimes you do have to look over the catcher if he takes that slot away..........but standing up almost straight over the catchers as those umpires did, it is understandable why they missed so many pitches.

You have to get down low and stick your nose in there so to speak. You keep your head still and track the balls with your eyes. If I was working those games, I would have had to get down on one knee to have an effective strike zone.

Another thing I noticed was they all used the same lame girls' softball mechanic to signify a strike. I'm sure they were instructed to do this. Let them use a little variety back there for Pete's sake.

bkb555, the plate umpire works in what is call the "slot". That is the area between the batter and catcher. You can't see anything right behind the catcher.

They have to pay kids, because sensible coaches and parents don't exist when it comes to their babies.

Don't knock it until you've tried it.......umpire associations are always looking for good umpires.

From what I understand, some tournament director double booked the fields. Teams are dropping so fast they might have enough to do the whole thing in one day.

I'm sure everybody wants to go find a room on Labor Day weekend with people in town wanting to float the river.

Pathetic state of affairs.
